I must be getting older... Out of all that the flame organ is what I would pay to see!

You left out the naked men, of which I am one.

Alas, I bring only a plain regular piano.

But more like 70 bicycles.

That's one of many that I have in mind. But I have not contacted them. Montana is awful far, and this is not a good time of year to travel that far north.

But except for the Cat 3208, it's the right kind. And it's an AA, which is a big plus.

For the same $2,500 I can get a 1994 with 5.9 in Oregon, but it is not an AA.

Also considering the Washington auction bus, and others.

Not in a hurry.

The 3208 that will not start is a completely different project -- unrelated to Albatross. That one is a genuine Wanderlodge.

Did I neglect to post the chain drive idea?
A simple shaft sticking out of the bow below the "jet intake". Operate by hand crank or electric motor -- windshield wiper motors from cars are great for such.
Combine with dragster blower intake in earlier illustration, and the look would be complete.

Albatross will be for normal traveling, just like Millicent. Using her as a Mutant Vehicle at TTITD would be a bonus.

Creating a net gain of energy with a windmill by pushing the windmill thru the air with a diesel engine would constitute a perpetuum mobile -- which cannot exist.
See... they did send me to school for a while!

or just have a wiper motor with a rubber tire up against the spoked rim to make it turn.
No chains and sprockets needed.
